I've been playing around with the weather data, and thought you might like to see how our snow depth at Longmire compares to average--and record--snow depth. These are measurements taken at our weather station, going back to 1931, as recorded by the Western Regional Climate Center. (Note: there are two entries for Longmire: one recording data from 1931-1978, the other from 1978 to 2007.) The data show two previous springs where the snow has lingered this long at Longmire: 1955 and 1971. (1956 seems to have been a close third.) In 1971, the snow depth finally reached zero at the Longmire weather station on May 26.
Also worth noting: the following winter, the weather station at Paradise set a world record for the most snowfall recorded in a single snow year.
